The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Staffordshire is Matthew Ellis.

The PCC sets the annual budget for Staffordshire Police and holds the Chief Constable to account for delivering an effective and efficient police service.


The Chief Constable is responsible for the day-to-day operations of Staffordshire Police but is accountable to the public through the PCC.


PCCs are responsible for setting out and delivering against a Police and Crime Plan, as well as appointing the Chief Constable.


The PCC also sets the part of the council tax that goes to policing, called the precept, aims to cut crime across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent and makes grants available for local organisations.


The PCC represents all of those living in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent and assesses, supports and challenges the overall performance of Staffordshire Police against the priorities agreed within the Police and Crime Plan.


A Police and Crime Panel in Staffordshire assesses the performance of the PCC and look at their actions and decisions. You can watch these live at www.staffordshire-pcc.gov.uk/webcast
